I assume you are using the db2000GetInfoDevice library. As I pointed out in my post above Basic4ppc v6.9 fundamentally changed the handling of variables, both regular ones and arrays. In order to work with version 6.9 the library would need to be recompiled to return a value of type String instead of the type Array that it does now. I realise that although I have modified the Collections library to work with Basic4ppc v6.9 I forgot to post the updated library. I'll do that when I've checked it out again.
